The 2007 Honda Fit hit the North American streets in April 2006 and has had very few issues since then. The inaugural model was replaced for the 2009 model year which has seen the fit grow up slightly but still maintain its reliability.
The Honda Fit and Honda Fit Sport have many strong qualities
which definitely are not outweighed by the complaints we have uncovered.
